Classical mechanics is the study of the motion of bodies based upon Isaac Newton's famous laws of mechanics. The reader should be comfortable with basic physics concepts. Familiarity with geometry, algebra, and calculus is a must.

The book emphasizes the development of general tools to support the analysis of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems. Explorations of transitions to chaos, nonlinear resonances, and resonance overlap to help the student to develop tools for understanding.
